2016 Andis Painted Fields: Found Andis at the Underground Wine Event in DC in 2018. This smooth drinking red blend with plummy fruit notes reminds me of an upscale Apothic Red but not in a bad way. Good structural characteristics with a nice acidity through the palate, just missing a little bit of tannin on the finish to carry it all the way through. A great value with good fruit and winemaking. What’s great about this wine is it pairs well with a lot of dishes, especially Italian red sauce heavy ones and I think it would be excellent with an Italian Pork Loin. A majority is Barbera with Primitivo and a dash of Petite Sirah, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

This rainy weather has got me cozying up with a bold Barbera from Bella Grace Vineyards.

Barbera hails from northern Italy, where it is the 3rd most planted grape! High acidity and low tannins make this wine fruity, juicy and easy to pair with food.

Barbera found its second home in the Sierra Foothills, planted by goldrush seekers. This deeply pigmented wine gets plenty of new French oak aging, rounding out the autumnal spices and boosting the body of this easy to love red.

A natural complement to tomato based dishes, roasted veggies or meats, yes to cheese, and always fireside on rainy afternoons.

A new website just launched which was developed by this gentleman @foothillswino . Very informative site, check it out!

This is Zinfandel country and the home to the 150 year old Original Grandpere Vineyard and dozens of other century-old vines, thanks to sandy soil that protected them from that devastating louse phylloxera. Today Barbera, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, and Rhône varieties share the stage with Zinfandel.
🍷
This is the most developed of the Foothills sub-regions, and is home to 5 of our 14 Star-Awarded Wineries: Amador Cellars, Rombauer (yes, THAT Rombauer), Terre Rouge & Easton, Turley, and Vino Noceto, along with 12 wineries on our watch list.

Today we take a closer look at the Apple Hill/Camino sub-region of the Sierra Foothills AVA, located just to the east of Placerville and conveniently straddling Highway 50.
🍷
Though dominated by apple orchards and shops selling fritters and pies, there is some spectacular wine here also. Steep slopes, narrow canyons, and hundreds of microclimates lead to unparalleled vine diversity. Bordeaux varieties thrive as do Mediterranean varieties... often just a few steps from one another.
🍷
Apple Hill/Camino has dozens of great wineries, but three have distinguished themselves and have been named our Star-Awarded Wineries... Boeger Winery: a nearly 50-year old tradition with @sfchronicle recently named winemaker to watch, @byronelmendorf; Lava Cap Winery: a beautifully situated winery producing consistently great wines, including our Cabernet Sauvignon of the Year; and Starfield Vineyards: a newcomer with a stunning and immaculate vineyard with 17 different varieties planted.

Meet the six winemakers who are poised to shape the definition of American wine. Right now, it’s never been easier to find great West Coast wines, and now you can expect distinctive bottles from independent winemakers all the way up and down the coast, from Washington state to Southern California.

Which brings us to people like @brianneday who’s changing notions of what Oregon wine should be. @marty_winters and @__alex_pitts bring a fresh take to California’s old vines in Berkeley. Then there’s Indian-American winemaker @fluteshal in San Francisco whose Pinot Noir is attention-worthy, says Chronicle wine critic @esthermob. In SLO county, @nicole_bertotti_pope is defining a corner of the Central Coast as prime Syrah territory. Lastly, @byronelmendorf is proving how diverse and dynamic Sierra foothills wines can be. 📷: @jachristian @erickmadrid43 @MMacor @amandalucier @santimejia_

Every once in a while, the stars align, the vintage is (nearly) perfect, and the Viognier is flat-out spectacular. Hank of @laclarinefarm saw this as soon as the 2018 vintage started to ferment. Whole cluster pressed, this Sierra Foothills grown Viognier is exuberant, aromatic and super delicious. 
Viognier is a no-brainer for cold weather pairings. A somewhat fickle fruit found largely in the northern Rhône, Viognier neared obsoletion during the mid 20th century. Over the past few decades, however, the grape has been on a major comeback kick, making its way out of France and over to the sunny regions of Australia, Italy and California. This newfound love for the grape comes as no surprise - when made well, these wines are textural, aromatic, and singing of stone fruit and citrus. Link in bio for a few of our favorites!

A friend sent this to us. She was our first tasting room manager. She just opened a 2002 Tete-a-Tete and said it was showing great! Our modestly-priced cuveé of Rhône varietals really sings with age or at a more reasonable maturity. #rhonezone #sierrafoothillswine
